    I don't know much about that NUSD thing, probably the reason why I said NUX thing [​IMG]
    and for the source bit, wasn't this whole thread based upon someone browsing the internet channel's source?
    if it's all css and js, I think it'll be way easy to make my own version [​IMG]

    The JS/CSS is what the individual menus are based on (basically everything you can see). The internals of the web browser are binary.

    obviously, how else to get it to work on a WII... but it, the GUI, still has a source, right? [​IMG] so, if anyone would be so friendly, I'd like to have a go at it [​IMG]

    Ok let me get this straight. The only portions you can modify on the net channel is the basic interfaces using CSS/JS. Even if you could modify the CSS/JS & add some eye candy touch to the wii net channel interface, you could'nt make something useful with (so no new fonctionnality).

    Example : JS tabs. The channel itselfs has an (hilarious) memory restriction which can even lead to a crash while loading big pages (with lots of content like images, flash & stuff). So it's not an option to add js containers & tabs if it cant even deal perfectly with just one damn page. It could work but will lead into crash / reload app every X tabs or crashing when loading a new tab => totaly irritating for the end user and useless. And moreover if you close the js tabs, you don't have any control on the memory handling, so all contents stay in memory causing garbage / reloading channel stuff : JS has no access to the cache (not at all! don't even think about it)

    So, i see only one solution : a homebrew port of a common & lightweight web browser. But personnaly, i'm not going into this, it requires a damn lot of work.

    To conclude, unless someone decides to port a decent web browser, you'll have to deal with the (free) wii internet channel. You could theme it, but not modify the way it works.

    Any downsides to updating to this new Internet Channel?

    Also, I use 3.2U and don't want to update, so are there any WADs yet of this new channel? Since it's free again it could be posted here, right?

    Thanks!

    As long as you have IOS50 and the latest Shop Channel installed, you'll be fine. [​IMG]
